    Default Spikey© at The Grasshopper

    Got up nice and early, expecting to get the Snot Rocket washed, one look at the weather and thought...nah...

    So arrived at a soaking wet Grasshopper at just after 11am, first one there, Harry & Sophie joined me not long after. Had a little chat in the rain, which actually stopped just as everyone else started to turn in. After a bit I notice a Moonland Vec pulling in, saw the reg and thought I recognised it...Yay it was my old Beast! Nice to see the old girl again and good to know the new owners are enjoying her

    After a bit of a natter we moved inside for some lunch, had a lovely roast beef dinner from the carvery, can recommend it if you're in the area.

    Then it was back outside for some more chat, photos and then some drive-by's. I jumped in with Heath for a spin in his GSi, chasing Spoons + passengers up and down the road a bit, god I love the sound of those pipes...

    Got back and D was going to take his out for a spin, so grabbed Dean and jumped in the Snot Rocket, gave chase...Pleased that it managed to perform reasonably well, D got away from me but not by as much as I thought he might. Had some wheelspin and sideways action, probably scaring the pants off of Dean, must check the upholstery

    Didn't spend too much time taking pictures as I don't like the camera getting wet...but here's what i took:

    I seem to recall looking in my rear view and seeing you diminishing rapidly.

    I'd say so - I think a regular monthly meet would be a good thing to have for all the regions, nothing big or fancy - just a regular meet so that people get to see each other more often and new members have more chance of meeting up.
